About This Beer
Here’s the story of the beer, directly from the brewer themself!
“In 2015, we were trying to figure out what to brew for our annual ‘Christmas in the Backwoods’ at the pub. This Christmas party is an opportunity to showcase specialty beers, and fun seasonals. Our brewer said, ‘I know this sounds crazy, but what if we brewed a Pecan Pie Porter?’ We all loved the idea and decided to brew a small batch. We only needed a few kegs for the party, so we decided we'd send some out into the Portland and Seattle markets. Within just a couple days, all the kegs were sold out and our distributors were asking for more! We brewed another batch and it sold out just as fast. This is now our seventh season brewing this beer!”
Every sip’s silky smooth like maple syrup, with hints of semi-sweet cacao nibs. As it warms, notes of almond toffee skips across the palate, making way for tongue-coating vanilla bean complexity. A sprinkling of toasted pecans dusted in dark brown sugar rounds out this flavor, and a semi-dry finish will keep you sipping through the evening.
